From late April to mid-July, IBO staff conduct point-count surveys throughout the Intermountain West as a part of the Integrated Monitoring in Bird Conservation Regions (IMBCR) program coordinated by Bird Conservancy of the Rockies.

Project Overview

This is a coordinated multi-agency bird monitoring effort that covers most western states and we are excited to continue collecting data that contributes at multiple levels. Technicians on this project travel extensively to reach the various survey locations and some of the hiking is quite grueling and in very steep and wet (but beautiful!) terrain.
